See-Through Balconies

The feature is a hallmark of new Francesco Paszkowski superyacht designs from CRN.

Italian builder CRN is offering two new superyacht designs by Francesco Paszkowski. The 236- and 262-footers, each built of steel with aluminum superstructures, have slender lines, rounded shapes and see-through balconies to eliminate any feeling of a barrier between the yacht and the water.

Paszkowski took his inspiration from the 200-foot Saramour, his first design built by CRN.

“The Saramour was our first opportunity to cooperate with a prestigious shipyard like CRN and was a drive for us to jointly develop new, innovative ideas,” he stated in a press release. “These two projects are a natural evolution of the stylistic features of their 61-meter predecessor and the result of a deep analysis and an extensive research aimed at finding the perfect balance between outdoor and interior spaces.”

In addition to the see-through balconies, both designs include features such as outdoor swimming pools, wide glazed surfaces and spacious beach clubs.

The 236-footer has six decks that house an owner’s apartment with terrace and swimming pool, along with five VIP staterooms, a gymnasium, a sauna and a massage room.

The 262-footer also has six decks and five VIP staterooms. The owner’s apartment on this yacht includes a gymnasium, massage room and business area. Three outdoor swimming pools are on various decks, and the beach club is offered in multiple arrangements including one with a tropical garden.
